Hello again,

the problem is solved!
I tracked it down to a corrupted TCP-stack on the NT-box (thanks
David). After reinstalling the complete TCP-section on the NT-
box everything works perfectly now. It is really fast!
So, do not always think it´s the unix/samba combo that is broken
or misconfigured...
